Roommate got his first one today, unfortunately myself and the fiance got bumped down from 1B to 2A because the state didn't want to admit they hadn't gotten enough doses to cover all the over-50s in 1B in a timely fashion.

I got spam from my medical clinic telling me to check if I was eligible for a free shot.  I know I'm not eligible and assumed it was a scam.  I called the clinic and it turned out it was not a scam, covid shots in WA are all free and someone at corporate was being stupid about publicity.  I am relieved since my assumption was that my medical records had been stolen.  I'm still not eligible, but I have gotten pretty used to hermiting out, I can handle a couple more months.

My brain is catastrophic right now. The executive dysfunction is cranked up to 11 and it's a struggle to do anything more complicated than counting shampoos. Fortunately, the thing I do that does the most good right now is at that level.

Getting mine tomorrow. Vodafone contract cancelled. I can use my bloodstream as a 5G hotspot, right?

Yep, I'm even picking up comms from the lizard people on the moon. No need to pay Virgin Media for Interwebz, now!

So today was fun. Turned up an hour late cos I had a brainfart first thing and was only looking at the minute hand for when it was time to head out. I get there, check in and the next thing needle woman is fawning over the definition I have on my deltoids. I'm like enjoying the ego stroke and flirting a bit back, suddenly she lets out a squeal like Lambert in Alien and I turn round and she's got my blood over her face. Turn out I'm a squirter, who knew! Dunno what the fuck she hit but was was epic lulz. Whole college gym full of punters all like WTF whiplash when she yelped. Army dudes all stinkeyeing me like I've pulled out a detonator or something. Meanwhile the queue of punters still waiting on theirs are starting to look they're having second thoughts about the whole deal. Best laugh I've had since lockdown started. Highly recommended, would totally do it again! :lulz:

Good stuff, posting here for use elsewhere.

Been thinking about this one all day. The more I unpack it, the more I realise it doesn't apply to just q-anon. It's subjective reality and the underlying primate psychology that gives rise to it almost in it's entirety.

Yesterday morning, the weather service issued a warning.  By mid-afternoon, the temperature was +18 C, the few patches of remaining snow were shrinking, and the neighbour's kids were playing in their backyard.

Somewhat unusual weather, but not the reason for the alert.

This morning, the wind started to blow.  Hard.  There was rain, then snow, then more snow.  Now, the worst of the storm has passed, the wind has slowed to 40 km/h, it's -9 C and falling, the world has turned white again, and I'm regarding a tray full of eight-day-old tomato seedlings, wondering if maybe I should have waited another week before starting them.

Some parts of the world are ill-suited for human habitation.

The weather here has ranged from a high of 60F one day to 93F the next and then back again.

Of course all of us suffered fatal sinus explosions.

Half the spam bots I banned today had the same IP address.

It's like they're just mailing it in.

It's another morning, and I'm still stuck on a planet jammed full of humans.  :rogpipe:

I just found out there's a Hyundai Tucson.

Which is just asking for it, Frankly.
